Pajamas And Beer
Watched a lot of television, which included getting caught up on the recent episodes of South Park, which I find to be either bitterly scathing, or just kinda boring and pointless, but it's always something in the extreme catagory, for whatever reason. The two part 'Cartoon Wars' storyline, which essentially parodied the show's own banning by Scientologists, as well as the SP creators personal distaste for the Family Guy show and its staff of writers, was quite well done, and made a several valid points about banning television programs, and about the generally pointless asides of humor that make up a great deal of the Family Guy show. Not that anyone cares, but I thought that the SP guys made a valid point, that the humor in the Family Guy doesn't tend to serve the story, but just function as strange Jonathan Winters-esque non sequitors. This doesn't make it unfunny, just takes a different approach to the humor.
That Matt and Trey hate, with something of a passion, apparently.
As good as those episodes were, the most recent one was rather boring, with Al Gore showing up to try and increase awareness of an imaginary creature called Manbearpig, as a way of drawing attention to himself because he has no friends. It's just been real hit or miss recently, and nothing in between.
Watched a couple of movies, which may or may not end up being reviewed, as the movie review stuff tends to garner little or no interest. I guess it depends on how slow a day I end up having tomorrow as to whether or not I want to waste the time with the movie schtick.
My man in Odessa, Mistah Dave Vox Populi, or simply The Vox to those that know him and his esoteric musical tastes did me a solid today and chimed in with a suggestion for online music, www.cdconnection.com, which actually has a few of the Ennio Morricone discs listed with sound-clip links that actually work, a novel idea that I hope Amazon takes a cue from sometime soon, and a few of said discs are actually a few dollars cheaper than Amazon. Unfortunately, this isn't something I would be able to describe as a trend in their pricing, as they also list a few items for upwards of $25 to $30, which I'm just not going to be paying, sorry, I refuse to pay manufacturer's suggested retail price for any goddamned piece of music. If I wanted to get screwed that badly, I'd hunt down my nearest mall music outlet, because you can always seem to catch a few good bargains there; Gee, can I really pay you $16.95 for a twenty-something year old Thompson Twins CD? Really? I have no fucking idea how those stores stay in business.
